Description

Between getting into a tangle with a corrupt local judge, and discovering a disturbing black-market business, Dr. Siri and his friend Inspector Phosy have their hands full in the thirteenth installment of Colin Cotterill's quirky, critically acclaimed series. Dr. Siri Paiboun, the ex-national coroner of Laos, may have more experience dissecting bodies than making art, but when he manages to smuggle a fancy movie camera into the country he devises a plan to shoot a Lao adaptation of War and Peace with his friend Civilai. The only problem? The Ministry of Culture must approve the script before they can get rolling. That and they can't figure out how to turn on the camera. Meanwhile, the skeleton of a woman has appeared under the Anusawari Arch in the middle of the night. Siri puts his directorial debut on hold and assists his friend, the newly promoted Senior Police Inspector Phosy Vongvichai, with the ensuing investigation. Though the death of the unknown woman seems to be recent, the flesh on her corpse has been picked off in places as if something-or someone-has been gnawing on the bones. The plot Phosy soon uncovers involves much more than single set of skeletal remains.

Professional reviews

"Clive Chafer delivers his usual excellent performance in the thirteenth installment of Cotterill's addictive detective series featuring Dr. Siri Paiboun. It's a subtle, amusing, unhurried performance of a subtle, amusing, unhurried series set in Communist Laos in the 1970s and '80s. This one starts with Dr. Siri and a friend rowing across the Mekong River with a contraband movie camera. Then there's the fresh skeleton discovered beneath the one working street light in Vientiane's central square. Plus, an evil black market. So much to do for Siri, policeman Phosy, and other assorted compatriots, including a couple who have Down syndrome. All are portrayed with understated yet distinct characterization--including Siri's testy personal demon. For this is Laos, after all. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
